Colin Farrell and Paula Patton in Talks to Play Lead Roles in 'Warcraft'


The long-delayed movie eyes January 2014 as start date with 'Source Code' director Duncan Jones on the helm.

A long-delayed project to bring Blizzard's epic video game "World of Warcraft" to the big screen is back on track after long gone from the radar. Casting to find the right actors for the main characters in the fantasy story set on the world of Planet Azeroth has begun, Deadline reports.

Colin Farrell and Paula Patton are reportedly among the stars circling the key roles in the "Warcraft" movie. "Source Code" director Duncan Jones is tapped to helm the live-action film, while "Blood Diamond" scribe Charles Leavitt will write the script.

The movie adaptation was first announced back in 2006. "Spider-Man" director Sam Raimi was initially attached to the project, but he bowed out last year. The project is now expected to start production in January 2014.

"Warcraft" series is an online multiplayer role-playing game taking place in a high-fantasy medieval-like setting where gryphons, dragons, zombies, werewolves and elves exist.
